Déesse Syrienne. En fait, le element de départ est fourni par l'étude de los angeles « Mosaïque des philosophes » du Musée nationwide de Naples, que l'auteur interprète, à partir de textes de Plutarque, Diogène, Laërce et Stobée, comme une réunion des Sept Sages, dont los angeles dialog porte sur los angeles sphère, symbole du cosmos, le rôle dominant étant dévolu à Thalès. Le chapitre three suggest l'identification d'un convinced nombre de pics antiques à cette picture de Thalès, tandis que le chapitre four, dans une étude très fouillée du mythe d'Er, s'efforce d'éclairer l. a. signification et l'origine de los angeles determine platonicienne d'Anankè, dans sa relation avec l'image sphérique du cosmos. Le dernier chapitre montre, à propos de l'association de l. a. sphère avec l'iconographie des Moines, l. a. transformation de los angeles signification de ce symbole, comme de l'image même de ces divinités. On ne peut qu'admirer los angeles virtuosité avec laquelle l'auteur a su associer les ressources des textes littéraires et des matériaux archéologiques pour éclairer des problèmes complexes d'un jour nouveau, même si l'on fait quelques réserves sur l'importance réelle de l. a. contribution apportée par ce brillant essai à l'histoire de l. a. philosophie grecque ancienne.
